Film Ceilidh: Selkie Stories

Part of the Folk Film Gathering Season


Join us for a unique event hosted by the Scottish Storytelling Centre’s Donald Smith exploring Scotland’s rich folklore of the seal people - selkies - and some of the different ways in which filmmakers have brought selkie tales to the big screen.

A Selkie Story
(George Macpherson, Scotland, 2022, 13 min; 12A; English)

Mara: The Seal Wife
(Uisdean Murray, Scotland, 2021, 40 min; 12A; English)

(Hanna Tuulikki, Scotland, 2022, 20 min)

The event will include a filmed traditional selkie story from the highland sennachie George Macpherson, an achingly romantic new interpretation of Hebridean selkie tales in Mara: the Seal Wife, and the Scottish premiere of Hanna Tuuliki’s memorising new film Seals’kin.

The films will be introduced with live selkie tales from Donald Smith.
